一百元的馬拉松

我真的好喜歡跑步。大約半年前,在瘋狂工作和感情路上碰壁後,我開始自暴自棄,飲食不平衡,由一個不健康的肥仔「進化」成不健康的瘦仔。

 

可能你會羨慕,瘦有甚麼不好?但這種只有工作沒有運動的生活實在令我個人意志低落,也令人生像失去了靈魂。

 

「試下跑步啦,會叫返醒你個人,好有用。」對於朋友一句,我起初不以為然。直到有一次…

 

我是個經常帶銀包不帶錢出街的人。記得那天下班倦極了,我截了輛的士回家。去到半路,我才發現自己銀包只得一百蚊。

 

「司機大哥,跳錶跳到$50蚊我就落車啦,唔記得帶錢。」

 

結果,我家住屯門深井,在汀九附近我就要下車。「反正都在這裡了,跑吧!」然後就一鼓作氣由汀九跑回家。

 

起初以為自己一定捱不了要打電話求救,一向沒做運動的我,莫說跑步,連平時打桌球都要一cue抖十分鐘。一直向著夕陽跑,一直心想「我好攰,好攰,真係超攰」但卻沒有退路了,因為我身上沒錢。

 

只有一個信念堅持我跑畢全程-「跑埋去啦!就到啦!」然後帶著滿身汗水,氣都喘不過來,但極度滿足的感覺回家。

 

做人也是一樣。無論你是學生還是在工作,難免有辛苦氣餒的時候。如果中途決定放棄不堅持,你就永遠停留在自己的comfort zone裡,不會開拓新的世界。只有肯堅持到最後,跟自己說要跑完全程的,才會在汗水中看到閃爍的夕陽倒影,而為之覺得滿足。

 

那天開始,我時常只帶一百元坐的士,讓自己追趕著夕陽。由最初的五、六公里,跑到現在的半馬,一點都不容易,但每一秒都值得。我下年一定參加馬拉松,你呢?你的馬拉松如何?跑埋去啦!就到終點啦!

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
